Viking Museum Opens

Our museum is open for business. There are some great authentic artifacts from the Heritage Learning service on show, along with items produced by years 5 and 6. Our museums guides and curators have been showing our younger pupils around. There is loads of information to share about the Vikings. It has been a busy morning at our museum.

Happy Retirement, Mrs Carmichael

We bade a fond farewell to Mrs Carmichael today. After teaching at the school since September 1992, Mrs Carmichael (seen top left in this 1996 staff photo) has been a constant in our school, seeing the many changes it has gone through. She has been an excellent teacher and a firm friend and colleague to everyone who has worked with her. We wish her the very best for an enjoyable retirement.

The Vikings Are Coming!

Tomorrow is the big launch of our School Museum. It is dedicated to some wonderful displays all about the Vikings.

Generous Donation from the Stephen Hughes Foundation

We were delighted to welcome Gary and Hazel from the Stephen Hughes Foundation to our Friday afternoon assembly. They have kindly donated a grant of £492 for us to purchase a new football kit for our team plus some exciting equipment for some new sports clubs in 2018 (watch this space for more details!). We would like to thank Gary and Hazel for their very generous gift. Hazel spoke to pupils about her son Stephen, who was a primary school teacher who tragically died after a six month battle with a rare heart condition called 'Giant Cell Myocarditis' in October 2014. Since then the foundation has been raising money for good causes as well as too fund research into this condition.
